With over 17 years of experience as a licensed real estate broker-associate, I pride myself as having a passion to help home buyers, and sellers, in the Brevard and Indian River County areas. My specific areas of expertise include the cities of Melbourne, Viera, Rockledge, West Melbourne, Palm Bay, Sebastian, and Vero Beach. I had the extreme luck to meet my lovely wife, Laura, in 1997, and realized that her mother was regarded as the best real estate instructor in the county. I was an IT guy, then and originally obtained my real estate license in 2001, and have been a full time active Realtor since then. I am a firm believer that you should only use a full time agent who will dedicate all of their time and skills to you. The purchase or sale of a home is typically the largest financial transaction that most people make in their lifetime and, as such, should be facilitated by a full time, experienced, and seasoned professional. Laura is my wife and my rock and is the best friend that I have ever had. 20 years of marriage has taught me much! We also have the unique qualification of being licensed real estate instructors, and as a result, have a passion for education which has served to advance our knowledge and skills in the industry that we care so much about. I have gone above and beyond just basic real estate licensure, as I hold multiple industry specialty designations such as CRS (Certified Residential Specialist), GRI (Graduate, Real Estate Institute), and ABR (Accredited Buyer’s Representative). I am also a foreclosure and short sale expert, with extensive knowledge of bank owned and distressed properties. My mantra is simple, and I believe effective, provide professional results, with a personal touch. I look forward to helping you with all of your real estate needs. Let’s do this!
